How Ardent Mills Became a Shipper of Choice—and Why It’s Paying Off During the Perfect Transportation Storm

Feb 22, 2018

We're in the midst of one of the most challenging transportation markets I have ever seen, but that doesn’t mean you can’t succeed. I wanted to share how one shipper has strategically improved their carrier relationships and how that has created an ability for them to source capacity at a reasonable price even now.


Ardent Mills, a leading supplier of flour, grains and other products, has taken numerous actions to better work with their carriers, and you can benefit from their experience. Read or listen to our interview with Dave Venberg, their Director of Transportation and Logistics, to learn more about how they implemented changes based on feedback from their carriers’ drivers, made sure the C-Suite was engaged in transportation, incentivized their customers to make carriers a priority, and much more.

That’s just one of many resources for understanding this market and adapting, available right now in our Transportation Market Storm Center.

We provide this all because we're on your team, we're here to help, and we're passionate about seeing you be successful. Please, feel free to drop me a line with any questions or feedback about this interview—I would love to know more about how we can help you!
